Technology to Enhance
K-12 Education

We design and test new approaches to provide state-of-the-art technology infrastructure that empowers teaching, learning, and management in K-12 schools.  This work combines knowledge of the latest techniques for providing leading-edge, cost-effective, reliable technologies with a deep understanding of the needs of K-12 schools in rural, suburban and urban areas.

The Friday Institute is leading the development of highly reliable, highly available, cloud-based systems to ensure a world-class technology infrastructure as a foundational component of K-12 education in North Carolina.
